Abstract

In congenital heart disease with left-to-right shunt, surgical indications and postoperative courses are critically influenced by associated pulmonary hypertension (PH). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical validity of pulsed Doppler echocardiography (PDE) in assessing the reversibility of PH by surgical intervention in congenital heart disease associated with left-to-right shunt.
